The Cambria County Elections Office has received over 16,000 Mail-in Ballots as of Friday. They say they will begin counting those Ballots starting Tuesday morning at 7am. The Monday before election day brought a steady flow of people calling and visiting the Cambria County election office this year. Many of whom were dropping off their mail-in ballots for a number of different reasons.
Cambria County’s Director of Elections, Shirley Crowl says her Office will begin counting mail-in and absentee ballots inside the jury holding room at the Cambria County Courthouse. Crowl saying: “We are going to start at 7am (Tuesday) morning to pre-canvas and then canvas the mail-in and absentee ballots.” For people who still haven’t turned in their mail-in ballots, you still have time, but Crowl advises you should not mail them. Crowl saying: “At this point no, you want to bring them to the Courthouse. Bring them to the Elections Office. We can receive them up to 8 o’clock (Tuesday) night. But I do not recommend putting them in the mail at this point.”
